The EUCLID project aims to deliver the simultaneous optimisation of current pest management methods and the development of novel ones, and to promote their rapid adoption through the design of IPM packages and exploitation by end-users. This will reduce the dependence of European and Chinese farmers on chemical pesticides in selected key farming systems in both regions.

Develop new protection methods

Develop novel protection methods taking into account end users' needs and preferences, and legislation related issues.

Reduce the dependence

Reduce the dependence of European and Chinese farmers on chemical pesticides.

Promote adoption of IPM

Promote rapid adoption through the design of IPM packages.

Assess innovative candidates

Assess the candidate pest management and newly IPM solutions under commercial field conditions.

Disseminate knowledge

Disseminate knowledge to key stakeholders.
